Need help building budget gaming pc

Hey guys I need help building a cheap pc. I only have 300 dollars right now as I am a university student and I want to build a cheap gaming pc. I saw this tutorial on YouTube (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3f6INgYBmGo) to build a pc for 400 dollars with a:

AMD Athlon X4 750K Processor
MSI FM2-A75MA-E35
XFX Radeon HD 7770 GHz Edition Graphics Card
4GB Corsair Vengeance DDR3 RAM
500GB Western Digital Caviar Blue Hard Drive
NZXT Source 210 Case
430W Corsair CX430 Power Supply

I want to use the 300 dollars I have right now to buy all the parts except the graphics card which I will buy later and I was just wondering if you guys could help me find a better deal for 300 dollars. Also, does the motherboard come with an onboard graphics card? so that I can use the pc without having to buy a graphics card? I'm a complete noob at building pcs so some help would be appreciated.
